Centre alerts NE States on terror threat

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, April 4 � Ahead of the ULFA raising day on Saturday, the Centre has issued an advisory to the Government of Assam and neighbouring States alerting the States about the possibility of the militant outfit indulging in violence in the run-up to the ULFA Raising Day on April 7.

The Centre has inputs that anti-talk factions of ULFA may try to create blockades and law-and-order situations in the area, as their leaders have directed their cadres to execute plans to create disturbances and disrupt normal life in the region, an official spokesman said. �As a precaution, security forces in the area have been kept on alert to thwart any plan by ULFA,� said a spokesman of the ministry.

The Home Ministry also advised the States to deploy adequate security personnel at sensitive locations, oil installations, railway tracks and stations, bus terminus, markets and religious places to foil any attempt by the insurgents to disturb peace.

The Centre�s alert, issued in the run up to the raising day this year assumes significance because of reports of Paresh Barua faction re-grouping in neighbouring Myanmar allegedly with tacit support of China. India recently has cautioned China of insurgent groups, like ULFA, getting refuge and arms in their territory.

�The presence of Indian insurgent groups in the region and availability of arms to them, has figured in our discussions with our Chinese friends in the past,� an official spokesman of Ministry of External Affairs had said. The spokesman added that MEA had no credible information about Paresh Barua�s presence in Yunan Province of China.

Media reports had it that Barua had a hideout in a two-storied house in Riulli, Yunnan province. Intelligence agencies have also said that China was responsible for giving arms to insurgent groups as well as improvised explosion devices (IEDs).
